on wednesday, the day after the election, we may not know who will be the majority in the u.s. senate. we are looking at about 10 tossup races. a lot of these are 1 point races. my colleague pointed out that when this class of senate seats were last up that we had three states, montana, va., for. a million people voted total. those three state senate races and the majority status of the u.s. senate were decided by 66,600 votes out of 4.8 million. it was hanging by a thread. that is how close it was. quite frankly, i think there are seven races that could be decided by, pick a number, 200,000 votes total nationwide. this not only controlling the senate to but by several seed margins one way or the other. there is an enormous amount of volatility in the senate picture. we will see how it plays out. glen and fred, why don't you join me. i will ask them a handful of questions. and we will open up to the audience and let you guys ask questions. >> you are on my left. that is awesome. i have the republican on my left. anyway, thank you for joining us. i know you guys are incredibly busy. how ma

in the congress starting in 1980, republicans have had the upper hand on the tax issue. u.s. the public to the trust's current taxes and inevitably, it is the republicans. the couple of years ago on both sides of pennsylvania avenue, democrats made the first real concerted effort to say that there is a difference between tax increases on the middle class and tax increases on the wealthy. to be honest with you, the fact that the pie is shrinking for the middle-class this decade and has another decades makes the middle class more receptive to that argument as well. i think people are reading the tea leaves. this article i thought was very interesting today. a senior republican aide in the house says we will not have that much leverage. he says we will succeed. this is the author of the article who is stephanie kirchgesser. and james polety, politico, pretty close. if republicans back away from their hard-line on high and taxes, the outlook for avoiding the worst of the fiscal cliff is much rosier. that's just what i'm saying here. mitt romney took a step back by insisting that overall, ne

policies. when we are securing our homeland security, and securing our defense, we ought to be using u.s. tax dollars for u.s. jobs. it is something i have been pushing but we have more to do. that is just the manufacturing economy. we also need to protect the very investments that we need to grow. that is education, innovation, that's infrastructure. and unfortunately, the paul ryan plan that tommy thompson has campaigned on throughout this campaign is one that would give an of enormous tax break to the very wealthy, pay for it by increasing middle class taxes, and cut the their investments we are talking about in order to grow our economy -- investments like education, infrastructure, and research and innovation. >> thank you. i cut taxes 91 times when i was governor. she has voted for 155 tax increases. i cut regulations. she went to bat for epa is the paper industry. the paper industry is going to lose 7500 jobs because my opponent did not have the courage to stand up against epa. i can assure you that will not happen. birthrate, we have a chance to build a pipeline -- number 3, we h

there public, the co-director of the paper, and i wanted to make the film because so much of the u.s. cable coverage that i was seeing about the drug war, especially in this part of the country, to me seemed woefully decontextualized. it felt like rubbernecking body count journalism. x number of people were shot on the state. this person was be headed there, but no context. no background, no history, the deepening of the story. i'm by no means a expert on mexico's drug war, but i did have a very strong interest in this region and in. i began researching as early as -- in itjuana. i began researching in 2007 while looking for another story. unlike other journalists, who do not have the amount of time that you often need to tell the stories, when i was in production i had a little over two years to spend with the story. that is enough time to deepen your sense of a place, an institution, to gain trust and to hopefully have a deeper narrative. whether or not i succeeded at -- or failed is up to the audience and the people who push back on my perspective, but for me the ability to spend time wi
guilty in a u.s. court yesterday. what does this maybe say about what the iranian government is willing to do? >> well, it did not need this particular case in order to prove once again that the iranians have been involved in terrorist activities against persons, against states, against countries for a long period of time. iran uses terrorism as a major tool of its international relations. it is as simple as all that. iran has plotted against others as well, individuals as well, and has also been shipping arms and equipment into areas inside the middle east. syria is one case now in point. there is an iranian force -- iranian forces are battling on syrian soil against syrians. there are iranians that have been in lebanon for quite some time and who have been handling equipment in lebanon, which has been of a great danger to israel. iran has used the state of sudan as an area through which they could send equipment through sudan to egypt to send that into the gaza strip. as i said, the case itself is a case. it shows the audacity of certain iranians. i think it also shows that the irania
. with presidents that think federal government should have the authority to round anyone up, including u.s. citizens, and imprison them without charges, without trial, without legal representation, and without the right of habeous corpus. and our elected officials are sound asleep when the pentagon is warning that climate change is a greater long-term security risk to the united states than terrorism. so if you like the way things are going, vote democratic or republican. if you want real change, vote your conscience, vote justice. economic justice, social justice, environmental justice.

and reducing our deficit. i can tell you that when you talk about the budget, a balanced budget -- the u.s. senate race. senator nelson is on the budget committee and they have not passed a budget. connie mack is committed to a balanced budget. mitt romney has talked about the importance of getting our deficit under control. the bigger point is, what are the specifics of mitt romney? the president of the united states has been in office for almost four years. he is not attacked any of these problems. he puts out this booklet a day or two ago that the pundits are saying that is the same old thing. it is nothing new. the president has failed us. i would ask your viewers, when you are evaluating the two, it is indisputable that president obama has not dealt with deficits or debt or job creation. if you look at the history of mitt romney, this is a man whose every endeavor, he has been successful. he will get our spending under control and get americans back to work. host: about that blueprint about his agenda for the next four years, you can find it on our website. we will go to john in illin

in the u.s. can't compete. china has been a currency manipulator for years and years and years and the president has a regular opportunity to label them as a currency manipulator but refuses to do so. on day one, i will label china a currency manipulator which will allow me as president to be able to put in place if necessary tariffs where i believe they are taking unfair advantage of our manufacturers so we're going to make sure that people we trade with around the world play by the rules but let me not just stop there. don't forget, what's key to bringing jobs back here is not just finding someone else to punish -- and i'm going to be strict with people whom we trade with to make sure they follow the law and play by the rules -- but it's also to make america the most attractive place in the world for businesses of all kinds. that's why i want to bring down the tax rates on small employers, big employers, so they want to be here. canada's tax rate on companies is now 15%. ours is 35% so if you're starting a business, where would you rather start it? we have to be competitive i

a too big to fail question but this is not about jpmorgan chase or barclays. it's about the u.s. and china. china is on the brink of a major change in its leadership. it has written its own prescription for new economic directions, which they know they have to initiate or they will fall off the cliff. we may or may not be looking at a major change in leadership in this country, but we are looking at the fiscal cliff. i'm wondering from your perspective, as someone who does business all around the world and despite your protestations about not knowing much about politics, how you assess the relative chances of success for america dealing in the short term with its fiscal cliff and the longer term with its ability to get some semblance of good governance and with the chinese to be able to do the same and make changes in their economy so that the two largest economies and policies in the world will help things stay online. >> china has huge issues they have to deal with. democracy starts as white men over a certain age who own property. every society creates a middle- class and has
